Is it Ok to leave my browser running all the time?

No one but me has physical access to my computer.

i think that question is way to broad. as an example: is your browser the tor browser?   :icon_idea:

broadly speaking i think if you don't leave your browser open in sites that may contain malware and you also don't care too much about your privacy, then it will not be a big issue for you.  :icon_idea:
In terms of performance that's a broad thing too: the capacity of your computer (and os), how many apps you leave open (working) at the same time and which of them uses the internet... :icon_idea:

I agree with Felipe on not safe sites
the only annoying thing was when I ran a old PC game that change to lower resolution fullscreen mode,was every browser window had downsized very much,when I quit gaming

Depends on the web site- I've seen some running scripts that causes both fans on my Laptop to kick in.

It is best to close them, to be safe and secure.

maybe best to shutdown internet connection,because it wasnt fun to suddenly wake up and hear computer fans go fullspeed and check its a update in the middle of night:(

Is it better to have the update in the middle of your work?
